Posting a Christmas Card

I can't believe how fast the weeks fly past, it's time for a new challenge at Whoopsi Daisy.  It's Team A's turn to provide the inspiration this week and our theme this time is - PUNCH IT OUT - we would like you to use punches or dies on your cards.

This is my card using an image from the Daisy & Friends at Christmas CD, I have coloured her with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and used distress ink to make the sky background.  I also tore some strips of white paper and added some glitter to form the snow at the base of the image.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

As usual I have decorated the inside of my card using the same papers and design:

Card Recipe:

Papers:  Dovecraft - Jolly Happy Christmas
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools:  Spellbinders - Create-A-Flake Four, Marianne CreaTables - LR0205 and LR0206, X-Cut - Border Punch, Small Flower Punch and Circle Punch
Embellishments:  ribbon, card candy, pearls and ice stickles from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV - Christmas Sentiment Stamps
